Grand Rapids Women In Successful Enterprises and Grand Rapids Funny Girls on Achieving Work Life Balance

This evening event was created for women in business to poke fun at the ever-elusive goal of work-life balance.

Grand Rapids Women In Successful Enterprises (WISE), a collection of leading, like-minded and entrepreneurial women, has announced that it will host an innovative business event at Start Garden, Downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan on the 17th of May 2017. This groundbreaking and revolutionary event will feature captivating business networking and educational get-together focused on discussing how to use humor to achieve work-life balance and feel better about chaos.

Based in Grand Rapids Women In Successful Enterprises (WISE) was established with the primary aim of providing an encouraging environment for women-owned businesses to network and work together to build wisdom and extend support for growth and business success. The activities of the non-profit resource for women entrepreneurs are focused on fostering an environment of growth and support where businesswomen connect with each other; thereby taking their businesses to the next level and contributing to each other’s successful business growth and development.

In the bid to achieve this laudable primary aim, Women In Successful Enterprises gathered a team of qualified women entrepreneurs and business veterans to organize events, seminars, and lectures designed to empower and educate women in business on ways of engaging and surviving in their businesses. “Through a perfect blend of expertise and the business experience of our noble team as well as leveraging advanced technology, we have successfully delivered the most creative and educating events to women in business within the West Michigan area”, said Connie Sweet, co-founder of Women In Successful Enterprises.

To host this creative and fascinating event, Women In Successful Enterprise is collaborating with other organizations that will contribute to making the event a memorable occasion. The organizations include SBDC, GROW and Funny Girls.

Spice up your business with a recipe for success

What does success mean to you? Is it fame, fortune, a sense of belonging, being part of a community? There are so many definitions for success, but for WISE women the common thread is a growing business. Whether your business is just starting or well on its way, the road to success is paved in gravel and there will always be little bumps along the way. It’s important to have a community of friends and colleagues you can turn to with questions – or just to bounce a few ideas around with – and WISE provides that opportunity for anyone with an entrepreneurial heart. To that end, we’re so pleased to welcome Chef Jenna from Amore for our 3rd Quarter Event, Building Success From Scratch.

Jenna Arcidiacono from Amore De Trattoria, Grand Rapids’ very own 2013 Chef of the Year, will share her recipe for success on Wednesday, August 20. Networking starts at 5PM, with beverages and specially prepared tastings from Chef Jenna, on the sky deck at Varnum. Don’t miss this outstanding summer event and your opportunity to build success from scratch with a dash of seasoning from Chef Jenna.
